About Us

“What a Wonderful World! My life is filled with beauty. I see a strong man every morning I wake. My kids do the things I use to do like, jump rope, hopscotch, kick ball and play under the sprinkler on hot sunny days. They use their imagination and come up with the most unbelievable inventions.

My blessings come from He who created the sunrise. I’m grateful for my abilities and I’m humbled through His daily presence. I love to see people laughing, enjoying one another’s presence…that is a beautiful site from where I stand. I love “Good Morning” as oppose to “Hi”, I prefer “Good Evening” as oppose to “Bye”. I love people, excitement and giggles. My life is a crystal stair.”

Her talent and ability to go above and beyond the mediocre led to her promotion to the position of Executive Assistant for the President of General Electric Aviation, a division worth more than $500 million annually. Not only was LaTonya responsible for the administration of the President’s office, but she was also expected to assist eight Vice Presidents at the same time.
